Thanks for the reply, appreciate the info. Even so, pretty sure the Unreal Engine could have handled everything. At this point the only reason I can deal with the crashes is I'm coming directly from Skyrim, so CTDsDifferent engine so you still have to recreate the entine thing from scratch.
Feasts are absolutely needed. The 24/7 warfare really sets a stressful pacing that doesnt let us calmly enjoy the game (smithing, trading, etc). I always feel the need to join the wars because otherwise a faction will snowball.
Feasts would be epic. Throw bones over your shoulder to the hounds, have your wineglass refilled, etc. Be nice if they added a drunken walk animation and you could go to bed and actually (with a get-into-bed animation) sleep it. off.
